Bishop by Ben Glaetzer 2020

Bishop by Ben Glaetzer is a true expression of Barossa Shiraz that is elegantly structured with a long finish. Bishop is the family name of Colin Glaetzer's wife' Judith. Fittingly the sign of Venus, a symbol which has come to represent women and feminine energy, is the centrepiece of the Bishop label. In mythology, the symbol meant the Roman goddess Venus or her Greek equivalent Aphrodite. But the sign has also been linked back to ancient Egypt - a nod to Bishop’s link to Amon-Ra and Anaperenna. Bishop is 100% Shiraz sourced from exceptional old vine fruit grown in the famed Ebenezer sub district at the northern tip of the Barossa Valley. Matured for 16 months in a mix of 40% new oak and 60% 2-3 year old oak hogshead barrels (90% French / 10% American) Bishop is a deep inky red in colour. On the nose there is an explosion of brooding dark tones with bright cassis and coffee bean hints. The palate displays subtle richness with flavours of dark plum and blackberry intermingled with dark chocolate and dried spice. Generous yet restrained tannin provides exceptional palate length and persistence.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.

Inky black fruit

This is one of the best Shiraz I have tasted in recent years, especially for the price. It’s not cheap but well worth every penny. If you like inky black fruit driven reds, you won’t go far wrong with this Bishop.
